Hmmm. How was it expressed?
Ie 'I am instructed'? Or did he say 'against my advice'?
Clients that don't listen to advice make me cranky. Lawyers don't say things for no reason.
it was expressed as 'x is acting against my advice and will be doing blah blah blah'
If was advice as in 'legally, this is where you stand....' then I probably would have done as he advised.
But it was really just an opinion. 'Maybe it would be better if you just did this and then blah blah blah'
No one, including my lawyer, the police, consumer affairs, accc etc could give me a clear legal answer as to who ultimately had what right
